New to Printing, Prints are horrible help please

Im completely new to 3d printing so apologies if this is a dumb question/situation. So everything i’ve tried to print has come out as a stringy mess. When I say stringy i mean i tried a benchy and its just a wiry looking blob. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like you’re not getting good bed adhesion. A couple of possible causes/solutions are:

  1. The nozzle is calibrated too far from the bed. Recalibrate per the instructions.
  2. The bed is contaminated with oils or dust. Use isopropyl alcohol to clean it.

Wiki is alway good to start:

Do a bit of searching about first layer and come back if you need more hints.

Thanks! it was the nozzles calibrated too far. I did some recalibration and it worked!
